1. The Queen and her Escort. Nancy Sauers 
reigned over a sold-out Eight Ball at Rain- 
bow Gardens. 

2. All in the Family 

3. Christmas came to the Gannon Library in a 
colorful way. 

4. In one of their brightest moments of the 
season, the Knights gave the Homecoming 
crowd something to cheer about with a 6-2 
win over Alliance.

Catching the Christmas Spirit, Ralph Pon- 
tillo and Karen Bauer share that Mistletoe 
Magic at the Library. 
Dreary Erie? When the weather is good, 
Gannon students only have to go as far as 
the beaches of Presque Isle to get away 
from it all. 

Autumn in bloom — The Pep Band dis- 
played an intersting float that captured that 
"old school spirit" at the Homecoming Pa- 

Loving the Knight life, Gannon students 
swayed to the music of the Dan Moore 
Band at a sold out Winter Carnival 1982.

1. Gotcha! 

2. A rare scene in Erie — For those who do not 
believe it, the sun does shine in Gannon 

3. Up for two. Richard Rathell helps the Gan- 
non effort against their arch-rival Edinboro. 

4. Marketing 101? 

5. A "lifting" experience — The ski club took 
off for several slopes and saw some action 
with a little help from a blustery winter. 





On the bay, just a short swim from the 
dock, Presque Isle offers a scenic sight all 
year round. 

Away from it all — The slopes of Vermont 
provided an escape for some Gannonites 
over the winter break in February. 
Country Rose — Patty Bronson plucks 
away some tunes to pass the time. 
Officially it is the Hammermill Center, but 
to Knight fans, it is still affectionately 
known as the Audi. 


The tournament of Knights — thanks to 
sunny skies and a record turnout of 8-ball 
Queen candidates, the Homecoming Pa- 
rade was a success. 

Royalty — Winter Carnival King and 
Queen, Mike Kopas and Lisa DiSalvo, took 
the honors this year representing Alpha 
Kappa Psi. 

Victory at Glenwood — Gannon iceman 
congratulate another defeated opponent for 
their efforts against a winning Knight hock- 
ey performance. 

A quiet pose — a lonely gull looks out over 
the lake waiting for spring to arrive. 
Count Dracula and his countess were 
among the many faces who showed up at 
the Pike Bloodbank and Bar during Hal-

Stately Knight Manor — Old Main is the 
house of the Administration offices and Uni- 
versity red tape. 

Pieces d'art — For the art lover, the Schuster 
Gallery (top floor of the Library) offers a vari- 
ety of talent displayed throughout the year, 
and 3b. How many Gannon students does it 
take to fly a kite? 

A fantastic effort — In a charity basketball 
game, Richard Sukitsch and the "Priests" took 
on the Lady Knights. The game's proceeds 
benefitted Lady Knight Val Danner's brother 
Jeffery, who is striken with leukemia. 


The "Knight" Stalker — Dan Goodberlet 
takes a night romp around the G.U. campus 
for destinations unknown. 
This party's dry, I'm heading for Edinbord. 
Burning the Late Night Oil — a glow in a 
window at Old Main proves that life goes 
on after hours. 

Desk Jockey — One theory trying to ex- 
plain the apathy in Gannonland suggests 
that maybe students are too busy studying 
to get involved. 
Swish, 2 points!!

1. Eight ball in the side pocket — for commuters and 
residents alike, the SAC provides recreational diver- 
sions from pinball to pool. 

2. The Wall — not only a popular song, but also a famil- 
iar scene in the library for many students. 

3. Contrary to popular belief, studying can be relaxing.

Intramural tootball turned out to be a good classroom 
for the women who participated. Besides learning how- 
to play the game, it taught them the meaning of Sun-

It took a special breed of student and a hard head to 
wrestle on the Audi floor without any mats.

again in 1982 

The brothers of TKE (Tau Kappa Epsilonl 
had a very successful year, and also marked their 
27th year as a part of Gannon University. TKE 
started the year by holding a social blast at the 
MLK Center, raising enough money to have 
their house painted. In the fall, the brothers held 
their annual parent's weekend, enjoying the visit 
of the families and giving them a taste of TKE 

The brothers also held their annual football 
trip and Christmas tree sale. This sale was the 
most successful since its start, and it also con- 
tributed to the painting of the TKE frat house. 

The second semester brought six new broth- 
ers, bringing the total to 55 TKE brothers in the 
Gannon community. For the 9th straight year, 
the brothers held the AUT awarded for top intra- 
mural standing in Gannon sports. 

A number of the TKE's successful theme par- 
ties will be remembered in both thought and

memorable were the Halloween, the Toga, and

The Year In Review 

Gannon University, line. Pa. 


Gannon works to improve student athletic facilities 

by Dave Schuhz 

For over 20 years Gannon officials have 
been saying that the school needed better 
athletic and recreation facilities and that 
someday something would be done about it. 
The university came the closest to doing 
something about it in the 1981-82 school 

year with a solution possibly being reached 
by 1983. 

The downtown YMCA reminded Gan- 
non in September 1981 of the school's lack 
of athletic facilities for it's student body. Y 
officials offered Gannon two proposals to 
share facilities . . . 

MISSED OPPORTUNITY — Gannon officials considered buying the central YWC A tor 
use as a student recreation center. But the Y sold it to the Boys' Club. 
Photo by Ray Frey 

One would have allowed Gannon stu- 
dents to use the Y. it the school paid an 
undisclosed fee to the YMCA. Gannon ad- 
ministrators decided against it because they 
felt the price was inflated for the amount of 
students who would use the Y building at 
Tenth and State Streets. 

The other proposal called for Gannon 
joining the Y in construction ot a new com- 
plex to be co-financed, co-administered and 
co-used by the YMCA and Gannon. Noth- 
ing was done on this plan either. 

About the same time the YMCA was try- 
ing to work out a deal with Gannon to help 
its own financial situation, the Erie YWCA 
was in its own financial bind. 

Its United way allocation cut and its Cen- 
tral building. 140 W. Eighth St., losing mon- 
ey, the YWCA board of directors sought to 
sell the Central building. 

At first Gannon officials offered consid- 
erably less than the $350,000 asking price 
When the Erie Boys' Club offered $325,000, 
Gannon then raised its bid to $S50,000 or 
$10,000 more than the next highest offet. 

The Y board of directors balked at the 
proposal, reportedly because ot Gannon's 
slowness in meeting the asking price. They 
sold the building to the Bovs' Club saying 

the Boys C lub s use ot the building would 
be more in line with traditional YWCA us< 

Gannon offers to co-own, co-administer 
and co-use the building were rejected by the 
Boys' Club. Plans tor Gannon to rent parts 
ot the building also fell through 

Left without any other athletic facilities 
tor students, Gannon officials assured the 
student body that they still planned to raise 
Ss 5 million to build a new recreation tacili- 
t\ The money would come from Gannon s 
$21 million "Investment in Excellenci Pro 

A planning commirtee began designing 
the proposed structure in late fall and by 
April, Gannon was ready to advertise tor 
bids. Where the complex would be built and 
when construction would starr had not been 
determined as of last Ma) 

Gannon owns land between Fourth and 
Fifth Sts. and between Peach and Myrtle Sts. 
If the building were put there Gannon s bun- 
galow apartments would have to be torn 

Once before Gannon had raised the mon- 
ey and had a site for an athletic and recrea- 
tion facility. Then enrollment went up and 
Beyer Hall was built instead 

Plans for presidential home raise questions on priorities 

by John Lovasz 

After weeks of discussion and debate, 
university officials did not hu\ the Francis 
Collins home for use as the residence of the 
university president. 

In early September, President Dr Joseph 
Scottino announced at an administrative 
council meeting that Gannon was consider- 
ing buying the Collins home, 620 W. nth St.. 
and using it for formal university events and 
as a presidential residence. 

But. the executive committee of the 
board of trustees Oct. 9 passed a resolution 
calling for continued study into the purchase 
of such a facility. At that time, the commit- 
tee made no decision on buying the Collins 

One month later, the Collins home was 
sold to another buyer tor a reported price ot 
SHX).(XX). Since then there has been no fur- 
ther discussion on buying a presidential resi- 

The idea ot the university buying a home 
tor its president received some support and 

much criticism from students, facult\ and 
administrators. Much of the discussion on 
the home centeted on the question ot the 
school's priorities, that is, whether a presi- 
dential residence should be bought before 
the school filled its other needs. 

Tony Gallagher, a senior psychology ma- 
jor from Erie, said. "I don't think a presi- 
dent's house is really needed. It's a nice idea, 
hut I don't think we have the money. Com- 
muters need a parking lot, and we need bet- 
ter housing. The money is being misdirect- 

But, Melanie King, a junior international 
business major from Erie, said, "I don't think 
the house is a bad idea. It's prestigious. Gan- 
non needs something like that. We need a 
place to entertain out-of-town guests. If it 
was just for Scottino, I wouldn't agree — but 
it's going to be for succeeding presidents, 
and that s a good idea.'' 

King and Gallagher were two ot H stu- 
dents interviewed at random by the Knight 
in early October. Out of that group, three 

favored buying a presidential residence and 
10 opposed that idea. 

Faculty members also criticized the 
school's priorities on this matter in two let- 
ters to the Knight in late September 

Annmane George, assistant professor ot 
fine arts, said in her letter that further consid- 
eration "should be given this list ot priorities 
by our administrative forces.'' She also re- 
ferred to the home as the presidential pal- 

In his letter. Rev. Gilio Dipre. assistant 
professor of philosophy, also questioned 
Gannon's priorities. "Our students and fac- 
ulty have been waiting tor SO years for de- 
cent recreational facilities " 

In answering such criticism about priori- 
ties, Scottino said, "my understanding is 
we're not dealing with a question ot priori- 

"A committee of the board of trustees has 
tor some time believed it would be useful to 
the university to have a tacilin to use tor 
formal university functions. " Scottino said 

The committee also felt "such a facility 
could be maintained as the home of the 
president," he said. 

"I don't see am conflict between buying 
the Collins home and other plans tor the 
university," Scottino said. 

While Scottino remained in favor ot the 
school buying the Collins home. Chancellor 
Msgr. Wilfred J. Nash was still undecided 
about the purchase one week before the Oct 
9 executive committee meeting 

Nash, who served as Gannon president 
from 1956 to 1977, said he had not made up 
his mind about the Collins home and had 
not talked with Scottino about it. 

"I haven't gone through the place . . . but 
whatever decision he (Scottino) makes I'll 
support," Nash said. 

"But I think the greatest need we have is 
tor recreational facilities tor the students. 
Nash said.

The increase in tuition, however, "will be 
less than the cost of living increase. " Scot- 
tino said

sure sufficient income to cover increased

several student representatives said they

Ten representatives voted against the pro- 
posed increases and seven abstained from

mended that the proposed increases be re-

port the recommendation to have a student 
representative sit on the budget committee

of how the committee works'' in preparing 
the budget and tuition policies. Duntord

Scottino said, there may be new relatively 
minor expenses, but the budget as it is being 
contemplated does not contain any major

IFC rejects 
for council 

by Kiitby Felong 

The Gannon colony of the Kappa Delta 
Rho national fraternity was twice denied 
membership into the Intertraternity ( OlM< il 
last year. 

KDR first petitioned the IFC for member- 
ship in October 1981. KDR President Dan 
Stefanowicz appeared at the Oct. 7 II C 
meeting and was told the colony had to 
hand in a formal petition and constitution. 
On Oct. 22, the IFC had not received the 
formal petition and voted 18-1 against ac- 
cepting the new colony. At that time, the 
year-old KDR colony had 25 members, all 
of them commuting students. 

The October appearance by KDR at the 
IFC meeting was only to find out what steps 
were for petitioning to the IFC. said Jim 

Officials create club approval policy 

Uncertainty over official recognition of 
two student organizations led to a revalua- 
tion of the roles played by the Student Gov- 
ernment Association (SGA) and the universi- 
ty administration in approving campus orga- 

According to Rev. Lawrence Speice, di- 
rector of student development, the universi- 
ty over the past several years has been study- 
ing the role and responsibilities of student 
organizations on campus in an attempt to 
design an official policy on such organiza- 

Bv the end of the 1981-82 school year, the 
SGA had approved such a formal policy. 
The student development office and the task 
force which drew up the policy were "confi- 
dent and happy with it," Speice said. 

Speice said the administration will not ap- 
prove the policy until by-laws for the imple- 
mentation of the policy are established. 

Work on the policy began in late Decem- 
ber after questions arose concerning the sta- 
tus of two student organizations: the Sheiks 
social fraternity and the Organization of Ara- 
bic Students (OAS). 

In early December, the SGA decided to 
grant the Sheiks the same privileges as a club 
approved by the SGA. even though the uni- 
versity rescinded the Sheiks' charter last year 
because the Sheiks failed to meet housing 
and party requirements. 

Recognition of the OAS was withheld by 
the administrative council after the group 
got approval trom the SGA. Council agreed 
to withhold recognition of the OAS until it 
could determine the legality of the OAS's 
restriction allowing only Arabic-speaking 
students to be voting members. The OAS 
proposed constitution would allow non- 
Arabic students to belong as non-voting 


Before now there was no official policy 
on how student groups receive recognition 
and what body was to make that decision. 

The only reference to the relationship be- 
tween student organizations and the univer- 
sity made in the school's constitution and 
by-laws appeared under the section on the 

The new club approval policy is divided 
into two sections, "University Recognition" 
and "SGA Approval". It emphasizes that 
these are "two distinct levels of approba- 

It begins by stating: "Gannon University 
recognizes the potential for good and the 
right to exist, of student organizations, clubs 
and groups which are in harmony with the 
basic principles and goals of the University. 
To these various groups, who embody the 
goals of Gannon, the University lends its 

The first section lists requirements for 
university recognition of organizations. It 
reads: "University Recognition ot a student 
organization, club or group is granted, de- 
layed, probated, withdrawn or refused b\ the 
Director of Student Development as the del- 
egated University official responsible for the 
status ot campus student organizations of 
any kind." 

Criteria for recognition includes that the 
group adheres, in principle and in practice, 
to regulations as published in the student 

For the process ot university recogntion 
to be completed, the petitioning organiza- 
tion must have a minimum of 15 bona-fide 
members, unless it is an academic-related 
organization, such as the German Club. 

The draft also lists steps in granting or 

refusing recognition and rights granted to 
officially recognized groups. It noted that: 
"student organizations enjoying university 
status (recognition) as of Spring semester, 
1982. will continue that status." Also. "Uni- 
versity Recognition is a prerequisite to SGA 

SGA approval guidelines include that 
"each Recognized organization must register 
with the SGA and abide by SGA regulations 
and guidelines for campus activity." 

"Student groups not having current Uni- 
versity Recognition and current SGA Ap- 
proval may not function in any capacity as a 
campus group." 

The guidelines, in their present form, also 
state that groups wishing to keep official 
status must report each year to the SGA and 
the student development office. 

In that report a group must show that it 
participated in nine areas of campus activ it\ 
Those areas include: community service on 
and off campus, fund raising, national expo- 
sure and involvement, organizational meet- 
ings, recreational and athletic events spon- 
sored by the university, religious events, so- 
cial meets and university service projects. 

In preparing the policy, officials main- 
tained that they were not out to attack any 
organization. Vice President for Student Per- 
sonnel Services Richard Duntord said "we 
have no 'hit-list' or such, we will not in any 
way try to get rid of any organization." 

Speice added that "the overall program is 
what we're looking at. The main thrust is 
development, not control, and chat's a hard 

The job Speice, his office and the SGA 
now face is implementing the policy. "How 
do you implement this thing' That's going 
to be our tough job now." Speice said. 

KDR bids 

Rutkowski. KDR secretary We didn't 
want to petition then for two reasons, he 
said. 'first we weren't organized, we hadn t 
had a pledge class yet and second we didn t 
have a house. 

Five months after the rejection. KDR pe- 
titioned again tor membership to the IK 
The KDR colony had 17 pledges in the 
spring semester and were more org! 
Rutkowski said. 

Before voting on the KDR petition, some 
IFC representatives expressed concern that 
KDR would become a commuter fraterni- 
ty. The original 25 KDR members were 
commuters, but five of the 17 spring pledges 
were resident students, according to Ste- 

With the KDR s s5 or so commuter 
members, the commuters and residents are 
being segregated," said Jon Tulino. vice 
president of IFC. 

"Maybe our impact will be of getting more 
commuters interested in Gannon itself, not 
only the Greek system," Stefanowicz said. 

"We don't want to drive a wedge between 
commuters and residents, we want to be- 
come involved." said Jim Rutkowski, KDR 

The IFC took its second vote on the KDR 
petition on Apr. 21, but KDR was again 
denied membership, when the '. quorum 
vote needed was missed by one vote. 

Of the 17 votes cast at the meeting. 1 1 
were for accepting KDR and six were 
against. Twelve votes were needed to pass 
the motion. 

Before the vote. Don Stohl. the national 
executive secretary of KDR. spoke to the 
IFC about the backing ot the colon; h\ the 
national KDR fraternity, an issue which had 
concerned many IFC representatives 

The national fraternity considers the num- 
ber ot fraternities on campus, the number of 
males in the fraternity system and the total 
number ot males at the college, before start- 
ing a colony at a college. Stohl said. 

Gannon's KDR colony had to fulfill se\- 
eral rules set tor colonies by the national, he 
said, including complying with the IFC con- 
stitution, taking a pledge class atter the other 
fraternities and promoting activities outside 
ot the colony, such as KDR s Perry Square 
clean-up project 

On the issue ot housing tor the college, 
Stohl said, "we will not jump into it, but we 
will get them a house. We know to be suc- 
cessful, a fraternity must have a hous< 

The KDR colony may petition again to

The Year In Review 

The Gannon KNK.ll I 


Federal budget cuts force changes in financial aid 

Federal budget cuts and the creation of 
several new programs at Gannon last year 
caused many changes in financial aid avail- 
able for students. 

The first change occurred earlv in the fall 
semester when the federal government an- 
nounced new eligibility requirements for 
students receiving federal guaranteed stu- 
dent loans. James Treiher. financial aid offi- 
cer, said the new requirements would affect 
Gannon minimally. 

The requirements concerned family in- 
come limits and Treiber said. "Gannon is 
less in cost than the average private school" 
and as a result the new income limits would 
"not have a major affect at Gannon" be- 

cause of other aid available. 

An increase in interest rates from tour to 
five percent on National Direct Student 
Loans began Oct. 1. 1981. This was the sec- 
ond year in a row that increases in interest 
rates were announced. 

Later in the year the Budget Reconcili- 
ation Act. signed bv President Reagan, made 
additional changes which made it more diffi- 
cult for students to obtain financial aid. 

As a result of the act the maximum yearl) 
loan allowance was dropped from $3,000 to 
$2,500 and the minimum yearly repayment 
was raised from $360 to S600. The Basic 
Educational Opportunity Grant changed its 
name to the Pell Grant and the maximum

GU buys 
new apartments 

by Kalhy Felong 

Gannon finished renovations on the Ken- 
ilworth Apartments purchased in 1981, and 
bought two more student apartment build- 
ings last year, spending more than $500,000, 

The Kenilworth renovations, done the 
Summer before the Fall 81 semester, cost 
Gannon more than S200.000 for work and 
new furniture. Some students were faced 
with faulty plumbing when they moved into 
Kenilworth. Old pipes and fixtures, and in- 
creased use of bathroom facilities were the 
causes of the faulty plumbing, said David 
Jurenovich, director of student living. 

In some Kenilworth apartments, residents 
were missing pieces of furniture during the 
first week. The arrival of the furniture was 
delayed because of some problems with the 
manufacturer involving defective wood. Jur- 
enovich said. 

During that summer, the Kenilworth 
Apartments were repainted and recarpeted. 
Work was also done on the exterior of the 
building. Gannon spent approximateh 

$89.(XX) on redevelopment of Kenilworth 
and $116,000 on the oak wood furniture for 
the s5 apartment complex. 

At the start of the Spring '82 semester. 
Gannon purchased two more apartment 
buildings, the Narrangansett and Wickford 
Apartments, located on the corner of 6th 
and Myrtle Streets. The buildings, which 
would house up to 58 sophomore, junior 
and senior students, consist of 18 two, four 
and five person apartment units. 

Gannon paid approximately $330,000 for 
the apartment buildings, according to Juren- 
ovich. The 1981 Kenilworth purchase had 
cost Gannon $600,000 for the 35 unit com- 

The purchase of the two new apartment 
buildings was part of Gannon's $21 million 
Investment in Excellence program. 

Renovations for the two apartment build- 
ings, similar to those done in Kenilworth. 
were scheduled tor the Summer of 1982 with 
the apartments to open for the Fall '82 se- 

award was changed to $1.9<X). 

The Supplemental Educational Opportu- 
nity Grant has set its maximum award at 
$2,000 and no longer requires exceptional 
financial need. It has also removed its cumu- 
lative maximum award limit. Treiber said 

The interest rate on Parent Loans tor I n 
dergraduate Students, whose name has been 
changed to Auxiliary Loans to Assist Stu- 
dents, was raised from nine percent CO 1 I 

A proposed federal budget cut last year 
caused great concern among Gannon ad- 
ministrators. Treiber said the cut in Graduate 
Student Loans would be devastating. The 
loans, which provide a student with up to 
$5,000 a yeat at a nine percent interest rate, 
finances the studies of approximately 80-90 
percent of all graduate students and approxi- 
mately 100 percent of all medical students, 
Treiber said. 

Dr. John Rouch, director ot graduate 
studies, said he believed the cut would not 
greatly affect graduate enrollment at Gan- 
non because of the large number ot students 
who are part time, subsidized bv their em- 
ployers or on assistanships 

In February and March two new pro- 

grams were announced I .nd the 

Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and 
I niversitites (PACU) announced Go* 
Thornburgh's planned increase of approxi- 
mately six percent in state financial aid. 

Gannon s board of trustees established a 
new financial aid program which would 
make more than SI H million in new and 
additional aid available to full time under- 
graduate students over the next four , cits 
Financial support for the new "Universit) 
Grant Program" will be derived from the 
Student Scholarship Endowment Fund.

In March Gannon announced the estab 
hshment of the Kimmel Scholarship I 
The scholarship was created in menu 
Sam and Bill Kimmel. two local business- 

The scholarship was made possible h\ a 
SI 0,000 donation from Ben|amin Kimmel 
and other funds which may be contributed 
by the family and friends of Sam and Bill 
Kimmel. Only students who graduate from 
Erie County high schools will be eligible for 
the scholarships and they must enroll as full 
time students. 

Students enroll early 

by Dave Schultz 

High school juniors and seniors attending 
low level classes at Gannon to get advanced 
standing credits is nothing new. But 3-4 stu- 
dents enrolled in area high schools were si- 
multaneously enrolled full time at Gannon 
fot the Spring semester. 

The reason was that Social Security bene- 
fits paid to students of dead or disabled 
parents were to be discontinued bvjulv. 1982 
unless the students were enrolled full-time in 
a college or other approved post-secondary 
school by May, 1982. 

Other Erie colleges were accepting stu- 
dents so that they could finish high school 
and still be enrolled in college by May. 

Notified of the cut-off in benefits in early 
January, Gannon had to admit the applicants 
then because of Gannon's Jan. 14 starting 

Two things were required for admission 
to the early enrollment program, said Rich- 
ard Sukitsch, admissions director. First, stu- 
dents had to meet the standatds of the uni- 
versity. "We turned students down tor this 
program . . . which is unfortunate," he said. 
The standards included SAT scores, grade 
point averages in high school and class rank. 
he said. 

Second, the high school had to give Gan- 
non a letter from the ptincipal specifying the 
coutses a student needed to graduate. Su- 
kitsch said. 

Some schools, like Villa Matia Academy, 
accept Gannon credits for a high school 

diploma. McDowell and Cathedral Prep, 
however, were requiring that the students 
still take classes at the respective high 
schools. Other schools participating includ- 
ed St. Benedict's. Tech Memorial. Iroquois 
and East, Sukitsch said. 

Whethet or not the students had to go 
back to their high schools for additional 
classes, they all had to be enrolled full-time 
at college. "We decided to limit them to 12 
credits." Sukitsch said. Only one student was 
taking more. 

Trying to "help that adjustment to col- 
lege a little more." Gannon tried to keep 
most ot these students together in a few 
classes, rather than scattering them around 
"We didn't want to throw them into 54 dif- 
ferent English classes." Sukitsch said 

Since all high schools require English, all 
the students were put in one LS 11 class. 
They were also placed in other introductory 
courses like Introduction to Psychology, 
and something else in their planned major or 
at least accepted in that major. 

No extra sections ot classes had to be 
offered for these students except tot an extra 
section of SaBred Scripture. Sukitsch said. 
All the kids were put into that class because 
it is required by all Gannon students. 

But some students in the early enrollment 
may ttansfet to another college next year, 
"Some ot these students we know aren't go- 
ing to stay." Sukitsch said "Obviously I 
hope they all stay."

The play is based on the book. Di 

h\ Bram Stoker and dramatized b\ Hamilton 

Deane and John L. Balderston The pla) as it 

was written and iirst performed in the 1930 s 

does not show the sexuality of Dracula. 

Steckler said he did some pushing around'' 

with the script and made ces. In

Dracula was lull of action and colorful 

characters Rand) Murzynski, as Renfield 

the madman, was one of the most interest- 

im the tirst scene when he wrung Van 

Helsing s hand with mock respect, then a 

lew minutes later attacked him like a dog, 
played the glittering madman well Mur- 
zynski had the madman laugh, bulging e\es 
and nervous scuttle-step of the stereotypical 
asylum inmate He could even be chilling. 

A memorable example of the skin crawl- 
ing feeling he could project was in the last 
act when pushed to the brink [if a madman 
can get an\ maddet.i he began to rant and 
rave about "the blood of live things while 
LuC) giggled hysterically at his words At 
that point in the play Lucj was a little mad 
herself, and Anita Canzian as I.uc\ did her 
best work here. 

Lucy, Miss Wells [Jenny Capretto,) Ren- 
field and Butterworth (Bill Doan.l all 
seemed to have one or more scenes that 
showed oil their talents Capretto made the 
if the beginning of the second act with 
a deliberately understated comedy style. An- 
other tunn\ scene in the second act paired 
Capretto and Doan discussing the chances 
tor a date among other topics such as mad- 
men, bats and mice. And not incidentally, 
Doan's cocknej accent enriched all his lines. 

The Count (Mark Moorheadl did not use 
an accent but he had a deep voice, and its 
volume remained consistent!) level, his tone 
cold, even in the- face of Van Helsing's i Den 
ins Delaney] accusations Moorhead 
quered the melodrama of the pla\ — lines 
such as The children ot the night What 
musii the) make [referring to howling 

dogs) — with great skill. Most of the time his 
best scenes were the silent preyings on Lucy 
in her boudoir. 

Gordon Jenks as Lucy's devoted finance. 
fonathan Marker, looked convincingly wor- 
ried about what's goin' on with his baby 
When Van Helsing suggested Lucy's anemia 
may have been caused by a vampire, Marker 
readily accepted the theory although Dr 
Seward I Ed Helenski) was quite skeptical As 
I said before, the play was a melodrama, and 
so Jenks did not have the room in his charac- 
ter to do much mote than rush around look- 
ing for boxes of Transylvanian dirt, gush 
oyer the health of his betrothed and — look 

The only disappointing characters were 
Van Helsing and Dr. Seward. The other 
c haracters were drawn with at least one spark 
of liveliness, but Van Helsing and Seward 
seemed to have none. Van Helsing was a 
likable physician with a penchant for vam- 
pire hunting, but the only thing interesting 
about him was that he was attacked by Ren- 
field and Dracula. Delaney was stuck with a 
sort of blah character which he tried to liven 
up with a peculiar Dutch accent. 

Lucy s father. Dr Seward, just seemed 
exasperated with the whole vampire hunt 
business, for some reason Helenski had 
been directed to smoke a lot of cigarettes in 
the first act. and for some reason everytime 
he walked to the fireplace, chose a cigarette. 

struck a match and lit the cigarette, my at- 
tention wandered from the dialogue 

Steckler's directing debut at Gannon was 
impressive. 1 especially like Dracula s en- 
trances and exits He seemed to appear and 
disappear out of nowhere, which is exactly 
what I would expect Dracula to do He had 
the appropriate light footfall.'' 

The intended black and white set contrast 
designed by Alex Clemcnte. seemed too 
grey During the first few minutes of the play 
it ne\er even occurred to me that there was g 
black and white contrast. The dashes of red 
represented blood in every scene were 
prominent though I especially enjoyed the 
c reepy effect achieved at the end of the first 
ai t is Lucy lay in the darkened room in front 
of a lit fireplace Her white dress glowed red 
in the shadows, and Dracula s arm curled 
over the back of the divan Lucj gave l 
blood curdling scream, and Dr Seward and 
Van Helsing rushed in with the curtain then 
closing on this masterful scene. 

The direction ot Dracula'' gave the audi- 
ence enough exciting scenes, sensual mo- 
ments and ghost story qualities to carry off 
the melodramatic script. The collective tal- 
ents of the actors and their understanding of 
what the play means to modern audiences 
also helped make this play worth seeing

The Gannon KNK.IIl 

Arts and Leisure 

Jesus Christ Superstar' shows earthly side of Christ 

Jesus and Mary Magdalen are lovers, Ju- 
das is a tortured soul and the apostles are 
two-faced bastards in Andrew Weber and 
Tim Rice's version of the gospel. The lyrics 
of the 25 songs tell the story of a man and his 
effect on those involved with his life. "Jesus 
Christ Superstar," a rock opera, presented by 
the Gannon Theater department, by the 
ironic tone of its very title, was intended to 
give the audience the real story behind the 
good news. 

A 44 member cast under the direction of 
William Steckler, theater director, which 
choreography by Judi Green, director of Judi 
Green's Dance Factory, and vocal direction 
by John Burton, was presented April 22-25, 
29-30 and May 1 and 2. 

Steckler's direction and Green's choreog- 
raphy got across the human emotions in the 
gospel story. When Mary (Monica Lewis) 
sang "Everything's All Right" she caressed 
Jesus' head in a manner that implied more 
than admiration. The sleazy S&M dancers of 
"Herod's Song" brought to life the decayed 
state of his mind. 

The gospel is told from an Anglican, rath- 
er than Catholic, point of view. Rice and 
Weber wrote using the viewpoint that this is 
"a story about an interesting man," rather 
than using a religious viewpoint, Steckler 
said. They explore the relationship between 
Christ and Pilate, and the motivations of 
Pilate and Judas, Steckler said. 

"My understanding of the Catholic be- 
liefs of God and action is that God does not 
force us to His will. Judas did not have to 
betray Christ but he chose to. That is what 
this play implies," Steckler said. In the play 
three of the dancers represent Judas' Tor- 
mentors. They are fate, and were meant to 
help the audience understand Judas' posi- 
tion. It was important the audience under- 
stood them as "surreal" figures, he said. 

Of course the priority question when it 
comes to an opera is, "What about the sing- 
ing?" Simply and quickly — Keiser as Jesus 
had a clear, strong voice with a great emo- 
tional range; Sal Clemente as Judas Iscariot 
had a sincere, almost wrenching quality in 
his presentation; Monica Lewis as Mary 
Magdalen had a sweet, but strong voice 
which sometimes got dangerously close to 
off-key when she increased volume; the 
whole chorus was on-key, never weak, and 
included a few outstanding members like 
Natalie Massing, and some of the other 
women in the beginning of the "Trial Before 
Pilate" number. Keiser was the outstanding 
acting and singing talent. The culmination 
of the story and his abilities came simulta- 
neously when he implored God the Father to 
"take this cup." 

"Jesus Christ Superstar" was recorded in 
1968. Rice and Weber never intended it to 
become a show, but increasing numbers ol 
local theater groups and churches began to 
pirate concerts from the albums. In order to 
stop the pirating Rice and Weber created a 
show version around their music and took it 
to Broadway in 1971, said Steckler. 

There were 25 musical numbers and no 
spoken dialogue in the production. The 
theme music and "I Don't Know How to 
Love Him," were the more widely known 
numbers from the show. The rock music was 
played by a five member band from behind 
the stage. It consisted of Dan Erickson on 
piano, Jim Griffey on drums, Alan Perry on 
bass. Art Mizener on acoustic and electric 
guitars and Robert Gaynor on "everything 
black and white," Erickson said. 

The staging and dancing were definitely 
the strong points of the production. Judi 
Green worked the dancers into a profession- 
al looking troupe. The musical moved slow- 
ly up until the first real dance number after 
the "Hosanna." The dancers sang "Christ, 
you know I love you. Touch me, touch me, 
kiss me, kiss me," their body movements got 
across their frenzied adulation. This feeling 
made for a fine lead-in to Simon Zealotes' 
song which pointed out to Christ the power 
he had and the possibility of using it. 

Another outstanding but short, dance 
number was in the temple before Jesus came 
to clear it. Credit must be given to Anne 
Marie Leyden for the colorful costuming in 
this scene. There were whores, dope smok- 
ing kids and generally sleazy merchants, all 
writhing around sensously, bespeaking the 
corruption that had taken over the temple. 

The emphasis on human motivations and 
emotions was seen once the temple was 
cleared, and those who wanted to be healed 
converged on Christ. They were made to 
seem demanding and almost knocked him 
over because there were so many of them. 
We pitied Christ, rather than the cripples. 

The feelings and torment of Judas Iscariot 
were a major part of the plot as well. Cle- 
mente conveyed Judas' ambivalence about 
whether to betray Christ, and whether his 
fate was in his own hands or God's, in "The 
Last Supper." He first stood alone in the 
corner while the other apostles wondered 
who would betray Christ. In the dialogue 
between Christ and Judas we felt as if they 
were the only two on stage due to the inten- 
sity of the emotion. Clemente's best lyric 
interpretation came when he sang "Every- 
time I look at you I just don't understand." 
He expressed the bewilderment and guilt 
Judas must have felt. 

The apostles were not made to look very

noble. They were only concerned with get- 
ting drunk and how "when we retire, we'll 
write the gospels so they'll still think about 
us when we die." Reluctance to try and stay- 
awake in the Garden of Gethsemane seemed 
plausible with these self-centered men. 

Barry Corbett as Pilate, was for some rea- 
son dressed in a black tuxedo with red carna- 
tion and cummerbund. The red to symbolize 
the blood of Christ perhaps, but why a tux- 
edo in the first place? There were many 
modern costumes in the opera, but the rea- 
son behind this one was hard to figure out, 
unless it was supposed to stand for a slick 
politician. Corbetts nightclub rendition at 
the beginning of his solo in "Pilate and 
Christ" seemed appropriate for his costume. 
He gradually took on a mocking tone as the 
crowd began a mocking "Hosanna" chorus. 

Bob Pontis as Herod, then did a terrific 
sleazy dance number. He wore leather straps 
and pants with dark sunglasses hiding his 
face. His chorusters wore silver shorts and 
modified motorcycle gang garb. They 
looked like something you would see in a 
Greenwich Village, gay, leather bar. This dis- 
gusting group was fun. 

Lewis conveyed a shaken and shocked 
Mary when Jesus was whipped. She 
mouthed "No, no" as Pilate pronounced his 
fate. Her subtle but effective sobbing veri- 
fied her talent as an actress. 

Herod washed his hands and the water in 
the basin turned red — a nifty touch. 

The climactic "Jesus Christ Superstar" 
dance scene was full of soul and energy. The 
men wore suits and the women dresses with 
swinging, swirling shawls. The dance was as 
cool as the Blues Brothers with clapping, 
hand motions and rolling-on-the-floor in- 

The resurrection, added b\ Steckler. was a 
bit jerky, as if God had marionette wires 
attached to His Son. Other technical diffi- 
culties included a few faulty light cues. Oth- 
erwise the lighting was appropriately dra- 
matic — red backlighting behind the high 
priests in the first scene, and silhouetted ex- 
ecutioners in the crucifixion scene. 

"Jesus Christ Superstar" was successful in 
conveying Christ's human side — tor what 
other reason would he have asked God to 
"take this cup from me?"

Officials wait for survey before deciding on plus grades 

Whatever its advantages to students, the 
addition ol plus grades to student transcripts 

be delaved pending the con : 
ol a nationwide survey ol grading policies. 

This decision was made by Vict President 
rs Paul V\ Peterson in 
after the Faculty Senate objected to 
quick action on the proposal to add a grad- 
ing step between the letters ot the current A. 
H ( D and F system 

An earlv decision was necessarv tor pur- 
chasing an appropriate optical scanner for 
computerized grade processing Also, the 
deadline tor next vear s catalog passed be- 
fore a decision on plus grading could be 
made. Peterson said. 

According to Am. John Bozza. then 
president of the Faculty Senate, it could only 
be to the school's advantage to stud\ the 
plus grade proposal further and consider all 
the implications of adding such a System 

So. Peters. egan a nationwide 

survey of the plus grade issue and called on 
the Educational Research Information Cen- 
ter in Washington. DC for help. 

"The center routinely takes books and 
periodicals on higher education and puts 
them into a computer data bank. For (18 it 
will make a search of all articles on grading 
policy published over the last five years. 
Peterson said 

The continued search meant decisions on 
the plus grade proposal and on the purchase 
■ ptical scanner were delayed 

But while the advantages and disadvan- 
tages "t further studying the proposal arose. 
administrators and students voiced support 
for and concern over the plus grade policy 

Advocates of adding plus grades to stu- 
dent transcripts said the change would help 
instructors evaluate students more thor- 
and more accurately, 

There has been considerable interest on 
the part oft! i for a grading system 

that would allow tor moK discrimination." 

said Dr Martin Larrev . dean of the I 

of humanities. It was the humanities faculty 

which initiated the proposal last fall. 

Ted Hale. Student Government Associ- 
ation vice president of academic affairs, said 
such discrimination in grading would be "an 
advantage tor students If a student gets .1 78 
in j class, most teachers would give him a C. 
\\ nil plus grades, the student who gets the 
78 would get a C + . Plus grades would show- 
he worked harder."' 

However, opponents ot the change to 
plus grades maintained that it would unnec- 
essarily complicate their grading decisions 
and that it would be unrealistic to appraise 
students effort so precisely. 

According to Dr. Ronald Volpe. dean of 
the college of business administration, most 
facult) in that college "prefer to remain pat 
and maintain the present system They tee] 
chat it s difficult enough to discriminate be- 
tween an A grade and a B grade."' 

Volpe also said he did not believe the 
change to plus grades "will necessarily deal 
with the issue ot grade inflation." In this 
most people agreed The general concensus 
appeared to be that there has been no strong 
evidence showing plus and minus grades 
curb grade inflation 

That student who gets a 78 and would 
normally get a plain C. would get a C + 
under the proposed system, thus adding to 
grade inflation. But a student who gets an 89 
and would normally get the A. would then 
get a B + . thus decreasing grade inflation 
So. that question remained open. 

Also still open was the question of yvhy 
the proposed grading system does not seek 
the addition ol minus marks to transcripts 

"There wasn't a clear set of reasons in tm 
mind as to why we are not adding minus 
grades, since Gannon's new computer can 
1- 1 oinmodate both plus and minus marks. 
Volpe said 

In answering such queries. Vice President 
tor Academic Affairs Paul Peterson said 
adding minus grades would make grading 

too discriminatory. 

\\ e wanted to have two steps in each 

ley el of the grading scale, Peterson said. 

Minuses would have cut it down e\en 

more With that kind ol discriminate 

might as well convert to a numerical system 


Peterson added that a big advantage to 
adding only plus grades is that othet si 
mark only plus grades on their transcripts 
Mercy hurst College, tor example, a 
plus grades but no minus grades. 

In all this discussion, the fact temained 
that individual instructors would not be re- 
quired to assign plus grades. 

"That's a big advantage for our faculty." 
Peterson said. 

In science and engineering courses where 
students are graded on an objective point 
system, teachers would have little difficult) 

in discriminating between a B and a B + . So 
many science and engineering faculty ate 
more likely to assign plus grades 

However, in humanities and bu 
courses where there is sometimes no objec- 
tive basis on which to award grades, teachers 
there are not expected to give many plus 

There is absolutely no threat to those 

members yvho oppose the use of plus 

Peterson said. Each instructor 

would decide it he wants to award a plus 


Still, study ot the plus grade proposal con- 
tinued; the academic affaits office weighed 
the advantages and disadvantages lot as 
Peterson said, yyc have to be absolute!) sure 
ot ourselves before we make the final deci-

Scacchitti wins SGA presidential race 

3runo Scacchitti — SGA President 

When students voted in March's Student 
Government Association (SGA l elections, 
many noticed a major difference from pre- 
vious elections. The difference was that in 
most of the executive officer races, there was 
more than one candidate running. 

Only in the election for the vice president 
of academic affairs was there just one offi- 
cial candidate. 

This marked the first time since 1978 that 
students had a choice of candidates in a race 
other than for the president 

In this year's presidential race, Bruno 
Scacchitti. a junior political science major 
from St. Mary's, Pa., defeated Dan Bensur 
and Dan Gerstner. Scacchitti received ap- 
proximately 48 percent of the votes cast.

Figures show decline 
in male applicants for '82 

A declining birth rate in the I'nited States 
has caused hundreds of grade and high 
schools across the country to close their 
doors. Some educators predict the decreas- 
ing number of students will soon force some 
colleges and universities to do the same. 

At Gannon, freshmen enrollment figures 
were substantially lower for local and resi- 
dent males for the 1982-83 school year, ac- 
cording to May enrollment reports. In a May 
1 report, local male applications were 87 per- 
cent of the figures for the same period last 
year. Resident males were 94 percent. 

Gannon is aware of the decline and they 
are "doing some things to develop the mar- 
ket for local and resident males," said Rich- 
ard E. Sukitsch, director of admissions. 

While the number of male enrollments 
was down from the last school year, female 
enrollments were higher than in 1980. Local 
female applications were at 111 percent of 
1980's figures and resident females were at 
104 percent, the May report showed. 

This may be an indication of a national 
trend. Women now outnumber men on 
American campuses by nearly half a million. 
stated a Dec. 9, 1981 issue of The Chronicle of 
Higher Education- According to the article, 
in private institutions women's enrollment 
increased by 2.4 percent from 1980, while 
men's decreased 0.3 percent. 

One possible reason for the decline in 
male enrollment may be the overall decline 
in the number of college-age students. By 
1985 the population in Pennsylvania in the 
15-19 age group will decrease by 15.8 percent 
compared with 1980, according to a projec- 
tion from the office of state planning and 


The report predicts the decline will reach 
28.2 percent by 1990, but will lessen to 8.6 
percent by the year 2000. 

Gannon President Dr. Joseph P. Scottino 
said he is confident of enrollment stability 
for the university in the forseeable future. 
Though the number of the traditional col- 
lege-age population may decline, the rate of 
college attendance may increase." he said. 

Scottino also attributed the smaller en- 
rollment numbers to students' concern 
about financial aid. "It affects a student's 
decision of whether or not to commit him- 
self to a certain college." he said. 

"Generally, there is no evidence of the 
effects of the declining birth rate on college 
enrollment." said Scottino. "Any decline will 
be balanced by the increasing number of 
adult students enrolling in college." 

In fact, more than one third of all college 
students now are 25 or older, according to an 
article in the May 4. 1981 issue of The Chron- 
icle of Higher Education. This is because of a 
26 percent increase in the enrollment of stu- 
dents over 25 during the late 1970s. 

Based on reports from the Census Bureau, 
the article states the rising enrollment of 
older students probably will not completely 
offset losses of younger students, because 
older students are more likely to enroll part- 
time. "The Census Bureau estimates that the 
increase in enrollment of older students will 
offset about 70 percent of the loss of full- 
time equivalent students," the article states. 

"We're not planning the future of the uni- 
versity on any major growth, but we're con- 
fident of stable enrollment," Scottino said. 

jot from Lake City, Pa .got )3 percent ol the 

vote, while Gerstner. a first semestei 

in chemistry environment studies from Bui 

ler. Pa., got 19 percent. 

Before the election, former SGA Presi- 
dent John Bloomstine predicted a close race 
between Scacchitti and Bensur Both candi- 
dates had chaired or served on several SGA 
committees, and both were running on simi 
lar platforms which called for the creation ol 
a new student recreational facility and im- 
proved resident-commuter relations 

Gerstner was the dark horse. With no pre- 
vious experience on the SGA, he said he ran 
on enthusiasm and hoped to change stu- 
dents' pessimism and apathy. 

Although the race for president was not as 
close as predicted, there were three races 
decided by six votes or less. 

In the race for treasurer, John Coonej 
received 126 votes, just four more than Ann 
Van Volinburg. Cooney drew approximately 
30 percent of the vote, and Van Volkinburg 
received 29 percent. Also in the treasurer's 
race, Francene Swesey got 24 percent and 
Chris Ehrman got 17 percent. 

In the public relations director election, 
Ellen Alberstadt got 207 votes (51 percent) to 
Trisha Palchak s 201 (39 percent). 

The closest race this year was for senior 
class chairperson. Johanna Miller defeated 
Mike Rowane by only one vote to capture 
that seat. Miller received 87 votes to 
Rowane's 86. 

In other races, Mary Hezlep was elected 
vice president of social affairs, beating Dave 
Perkins 231 to 161. Pete Pearson, who ran 
unopposed, was elected vice president of

and management of this \ears elections 

In recent years all voting took place 
two-day period in Zurn lobby This vear the 
voting table was set up for one day ii

Bloomstine said the decision to move the 
polling site to Beyer Hall for one da; was 
made in the hopes that voter turnout would 
increase. Last year 512 students voted; this 
vear approximately 5(X) students voted 

Changes were also made in the manage- 
ment of this year's elections to avoid the 
problems the SGA encountered the year he- 
fore. In 1981, some seniors voted, a number 
of students who voted did not have their 
names removed from the voting roster, and 
some candidates campaigned at or near the 
voting table. 

Ted Hale, former SGA vice president of 
academic affairs, said there were no proce- 
dural problems with this year's elections

The Gannon KNIGHT 

The Year In Reviev 

School spirit survey results reflect student attitudes 

A survey was conducted during spring 
pre-rcgistration in an effort to better under- 
stand the perceptions and attitudes of stu- 
dents toward the academic, social, cultural, 
and spiritual experience at Gannon. The sur- 
\ev. which students took voluntarily and 
anonymously, was conducted by the Gan- 
non Task Force on School Spirit headed by 
Rev Francis Haas. 

The survey was sent to about 7 1 1 random- 
ly selected undergraduates and 200 random- 
ly selected graduate students. Students were 
asked their opinions and attitudes with re- 
spect to a variety of areas of life at Gannon. 

The survey was returned by 4-4.5 percent 
of the undergraduates and 37.5 percent of 
the graduate students. The report showed a 
slightly higher representation of females, up- 
perclassmen, humanities majors and stu- 
dents with heavy credit loads among those 
who returned the questionaire. 

In general, the students surveyed showed 
a neutral attitude which could mean students 
are uninterested, or have broader social out- 
looks, the task force suggested. 

Based on the results of the survey, the task 
force recommended that Gannon re-exam- 
ine the relationship between the university 

and the student in several areas. 

First, the average quality point average 
(QPAI of undergraduate (2.9) and gra- 
duatd J.6) students indicated a need to ex- 
amine grade inflation, the report said. 

Also, a higher percentage of employed 
students suggests that Gannon should re- 
evaluate their expectations of student in- 
volvement in academic and social activities, 
the results showed. 

In the students evaluation of non-aca- 
demic and social activities, the survey 
showed a relatively negative response to- 
ward the adequacy of facilities such as park- 

ing and food services. 

Students' evaluation of academic perfor- 
mance showed that freshmen and sopho- 
mores are less positive about their curricu- 
lum while junior and senior students are less 
positive about the quality of teaching they 

The task force's evaluation of the student 
morale survey indicated that Gannon needs 
to understand the apparent apathy of the 
students and examine ways to continue to 
monitor student attitude. 

Contract disputes delay 
concert for five weeks

Renovators work to encapsulate asbestos discovered 
in ceiling of Beyer Hall cafeteria 

Renovation done in Gannon's Beyer Hall 
cafeteria during the Spring semester elimi- 
nated a potential health hazard posed by 
asbestos in the ceiling 

Asbestos Arrestors, an Erie company, 
completed the renovation by enclosing the 
cafeteria ceiling with a government ap- 
proved sealant which bonds asbestos fibers 
together, preventing them from breaking off 
into the air 

Asbestos, a cancer-causing agent, was 
first detected in the cafeteria during an ener- 
gy conservation audit of Gannon buildings 
in Spring 1981 Besides the cafeteria in Beyer 
Hall, built in 1962, there were no Other Gan- 
non buildings in which asbestos was found, 
said Ernest Ellis, physical plant director. 

Asbestos is i group of naturally occuring 
minerals that have a tendency to break into 
tiny fibers that can float in the air and be 
inhaled or swallowed The older rhe asbestos 
becomes, the more chance it has ol decom- 
posing and breaking otf fibers into I 

Asbestos fibers may lodge in a pi 
lungs and increase the risks of de\' 

lung cancer and chronic lung disease. 

Fireproofing and insulating materials con- 
taining asbestos were sprayed on walls, ceil- 
ings and pipes in schools and other buildings 
erected between 1945 and 1973, when the 
I'nited States Environmental Protection 
Agency (F.PAl banned the practice because 
asbestos was suspected as a link to cancer. 
Since then, asbestos has been declared a car- 
cinogen by the Department of Health. Edu- 
cation and Welfare (HEW). 

From air samples taken in Gannon's cafe- 
Ceria before, during and after the renovation. 
Mark DeSanns. special projects assistant to 
Ellis, determined that the asbestos content in 
the air was never at or near the danger level 
prescribed by the EPA and the federal gov- 

'ugliest allowable level is 2. 2 percent. 
Before tin- renovation, the level of asbestos 
in the cafeteria air was .06 percent, after ren- 
ovation. 01 percent. "The asbestos was not a 
problem. We solved a potential problem." 
DeSantis said 

Student Government Association (SGA) 
efforts to bring a concert to Gannon last 
year were marred by contract disputes and 
cancellations, but two bands were finally 
signed and performed in the Hammermill 
Center on Dec. 2. 

The Iron City House Rockers and Nor- 
man Nardini and the Tigers performed for 
approximately 600 people and the SGA 
termed the concert a success. 

Originally the SGA hoped to sign South- 
sidejohnny and the Asburyjukes to perform 
during Homecoming Week at a cost of 
more than $10,000. The band rejected the 
bid and the SGA approved an alternate plan. 
At the SGA's Sept. 24 meeting Dan Bensur. 
then a junior representative, introduced the 
idea of holding a concert with three region- 
ally famous bands. Bensur menrioned The 
Silencers. Iron City House Rockers and Nor- 
man Nardini and the Tigers. "With three 
bands there will be something for everyone, 
musicwise. and less money will be risked and 
less will be charged for admission," Bensur 

At its Oct 1 meeting the SGA announced 
that it had signed three bands. The Silencers, 
Iron City House Rockers and Harpo. to ap- 
pear at Gannon Oct. 29. John Bloomstine. 
then SGA president said this plan was "all 
for the better. Tri-Band Jam will be more of 
a success, it appeals to more of a crowd than 
)ust a separate group." 

Disputes over contract arrangements with 
two of the three bands led to the postpone- 
ment of the concert after the SGA was con- 
tacted by Bill Hahn. who identified himself 
as "the sole promoter for the Iron City- 
House Rockers." Hahn said the Iron City 
Rockers did not agree to appear at Gannon 
on Oct. 29 but would be willing to negotiate 
with Gannon for a concert. 

After being contacted by Hahn. Holly Ni- 
shimura. director of student activities, 
placed a call to Btian Rohrbach of Magnum 
Talent Associates. Rohrbach negotiated the 

bands for the Tri-Band Jam and had pre- 
viously assured Nishimura that the contracts 
for The Silencers. Iron City House Rockers 
and Harpo were in the mail. 

After questioning Rohrbach about the ar- 
rangements and the contradictory reports 
about the Iron City House Rockers. Nishi- 
mura requested a written statement of the 
commitments that Rohrbach had arranged. 
Nishimura received a Mail-A-Gram con- 
firming The Silencers alone. 

According to Nishimura. Rohrbach said 
he would arrange for the House Rockers to 
get back and that the SGA should rent the 
sound and lighting systems along with in- 
struments for the concert. 

It was a remote possibility that the House 
Rockers could get back to this area but the 
expense would have delayed transport of the 
band's instruments. Hahn said. 

The band does not rent instruments and 
their instruments would have had to been air 
freighted back. This would have incurred 
additional expense and it wasn't feasible to 
make the additional arrangements after 
Rohrbach had already agreed to prepare 
plans. Nishimura said. 

The SGA voted to postpone the concert 
with hopes of getting all three original bands 
signed for a later date instead of trying to fill 
the original concert date with other bands. 

At its Nov. 5 meeting the SGA an- 
nounced that the Iron City House Rockers 
had been signed and that Norman Nardini 
and the Tigers had verbally agreed to appear 
at Gannon on Dec. 2. 

The concert cost the SGA approximately 
S8.000 and approximately 12,200 was taken 
in from ticket sales. Bruno Scacchitti. then 
SGA vice president of social affairs, said. 
Out function was to bring in Gannon stu- 
dents, and we attracted more students than 
expected. The concert operated good, and 
now we know the correct mechanics to put 
on a concert." 

The Year In Review 

The Gannon KNIGHT 


Gannon considers move 
to NCAA Division One 

Ever since Gannon's athletics went from 
NAIA affiliation to membership in the 
NCAA Division Two, Knight fans have 
been asking when the basketball program 
would go to Division One. 

Saying Gannon owed the fans an answer 
on Division One, Gannon officials asked the 
athletic committee to study the possible di- 
vision change. 

Gannon President Dr. Joseph Scottino 
also recommended that the athletic commit- 
tee study the addition of intercollegiate 
hockey, football, swimming and wrestling to 
accompany proposed construction of an 
athletic facility. Division One schools must 
have eight sports, meaning Gannon would 
have to add two to its present six. 

"This has been talked about for years and 
years and years," said Richard Dunford, vice 
president for student personnel services. 

"We've reached a point where there's so 
much conjecture on the part of the fans and 
the community we've decided to investigate 
and make a statement (saying) just what our 
position is regarding Division One," said 
Bud Elwell, athletic director. 

Separate subcommittees studying Divi- 
sion One basketball and the proposed new 
sports began meeting in the spring and sub- 

mitted feasibility studies to the administra- 
tive council. It was not known what action 
would be taken on the studies. 

Division One basketball would be contin- 
gent on completion of the Erie Civic Center, 
and swimming, football, hockey and wres- 
tling would need to use Gannon's proposed 
athletic facility. 

"When I came here in 1961 we had about 
1,000 students and one ping pong table. 
Now we've got 4,000 students," Elwell said. 

"We've been talking about facilities for 
the 20 years since I've been here, but the 
priorities have changed in favor of academic 
and residence facilities," he said. 

Gannon basketball would have to go Di- 
vision One to join a proposed athletic con- 
ference with Wright State University and 
five Division One colleges. That conference, 
however, remains proposed. 

Officials from Wisconsin-Green Bay 
called Elwell last December asking to meet 
him at the NCAA meeting in Houston to 
talk about forming a conference. 

"I expressed an interest in talking to 
them," Elwell said. "While I was there, no 
one contacted me about any kind of meet-

Renovation of the First Presbyterian 
Church complex was begun last year and is 
expected to be completed early this fall. 
Gannon purchased the three-building com- 
plex, located at 5th and Peach Streets, in the 
spring of 1981 for S5 10,000. 

The buildings, which include an educa- 
tional center, a chapel and a church, house a 
number of offices which had been previous- 
ly located in Old Main as well as classrooms 
and meeting rooms. 

The pontifical center and two classrooms 
were moved into the complex early last fall 
and late in November the Graduate and 
Placement Office and the office of Richard 
Dunford. vice president of student person- 
nel services, were moved over to the com- 

The educational center was renamed the 
Student Services Center and now contains all 
student services offices (e.g., student living. 

student affairs) on the first two floors. The 
basement has been remodeled and now con- 
tains four classrooms and two meeting 
rooms. Total cost for renovating the educa- 
tional center was approximately S25.000, 
Dunford said. 

The second building in the complex, the 
Selden Chapel, houses the campus ministry 
office, the pontifical center, a large meeting 
room and a temporary chapel. The basement 
of the building is to be renovated into a 
lounge for students and personnel and an 
adjacent kitchen will be available for school 
groups to use. 

Although there may be vending machines 
in the basement "there will be no food ser- 
vice, as such." Dunford said. 

The third building is the church itself. 
which has been renamed The Chapel of the 
Risen Christ. The church is the last of the 
three buildings to be renovated. 

Crosby, Rosen join staff as newest key administrators 

Michael Crosby 

Dr. Philip Rosen 

This past year Gannon added about 30 
new people to its teaching and administra- 
tive personnel. Perhaps the two most impor- 
tant "new faces" on campus were Michael 
M. Crosby, vice president for external affairs, 
and Dr. Philip T. Rosen, dean of Erie Metro- 
politan College. 

Crosby, 40, joined the Gannon adminis- 
tration in early March. He received a B.A. in 
economics at St. Mary's College in San Ant- 
onio, TX. While in school, he worked part- 
time in the development office and entered 
the profession directly after graduation. 

Since then Crosby has had his own con- 
sulting firm and worked in both state and 
private colleges and universities. His latest 
position before coming to Gannon was vice 
president of college relations at St. Ambrose 
College in Davenport. IA. 

A large part of his responsibilities at Gan- 
non will be to run the S21 million Investment 
in Excellence campaign. According to Cros- 

by, excellence implies more than qualit\ 

Rosen assumed his role as dean of the 
EMC at the beginning of the 1981-82 school 
year. A native of Syracuse. NY, Rosen 
brought with him a diverse educational 

He began his education with a B.A. from 
Sterling College, continued it with his M.A. 
in history from Emporia State Universit) and 
earned his Ph. D. at Wayne State University. 
He has also attended college in the Philh- 
pines and Columbia. 

Rosen was formally an instructor in the 
evening division of Wayne State, an assistant 
professor at the University of Maryland and 
dean of continuing education at Marygrove 

Rosen said he was impressed with the 
outgoing friendliness of the facult) and ad- 
ministration that greeted him.

points per game. Prvor also surpassed the 
1000 point barrier in his career with 23 tallies

with a total of 1005. 

Freshman Butch Warner emerged as Gan- 
non's plav-maker during the second half of 
the campaign, leading the Knights in scoring 
on seven different occasions. Warner also 
led the team in assists with 82 — more than 
twice his nearest teammate — and was num- 
ber one in steals with 40. He accumulated 
313 total points for a 12.5 average — one of 
the highest ever by a Gannon rookie. Be- 
cause ot his efforts, he was named Big-Five 
Freshman of the Year, and was named to the 
First team along with Pr\or 

Sophomore Dave Razzano stepped into 
the spotlight in January, as he hit 13 straight 
field-goal attempts between two games for a 
Gannon record. Following that perfor- 
mance, he continued his pin-point accuracy, 
ending the season with 204 points — 10.5 
ppg — and a 54 percent shooting average 
Razzano was named to the Big Five Second 

Dan Scully was Gannon s workhorse, as 
he played in all 26 games, starting 25. One of 
five seniors on the team, Scully led the 
Knights in rebounding with 18 7 . raising his 
career total to 544. He was also highest in 
blocked shots, knocking down 27 attempts. 
Scully finished with 203 points on the sea- 
son, for a career aggregate of ~^5. 

The Knights outscored their opponents 
by an average <>t 72 7-69 2 Their high games 
came against Buffalo\93-76), Central Con- 
necticut 192-80). and Hartwick (92-981. The 
98 points by Hartwick were the most given 
up by the Knights last season, with the next 
highest total coming from Mercyhurst (84; 
Gannon-86). The Knights lowest offensive 
total was their 52-point outing at Alii- 
17) That was also the Knights best 
defensive effort, though they held Philadel- 
phia Textile and LeMoyne to 55 each, while 
scoring 58 and 69 points, respectively.

The Year in Review Gannon University, Erie. Pa 1981-82 

^ Fear and Loathing at GU 

-^1 1 dov» schultz 

This being mv final column of the \ear 
and of my Gannon career, it's onlv expected 
that I should do what all retiring Knight 
columnists do — I and are doing in this issue, 
ad infinitum l:sav goodbye, thank people and 
reveal secrets. 


There, that's done. 

Thanks guvs and gals, except all those 
pinheads who called me names in print, or 
otherwise. At least no one did me physical 
harm, vou chickens. That's done. 

And . re\eal secrets.' 

Yeah. I've been giving you utterlv unsub- 
tle clues all vear. so if vou haven't got it by 
now it s time to bring out the confessional. I 
must leave Gannon with a clear conscience 
— and an outrageously long column. Ha, 
another clue. 

Yes. to those who may have asked if I was 
Prertv Outrageous, who authored all those 
Savage Seriousness columns from 78-81, the 
answer is a qualified yes. 

Qualified because I was partlv Prett\ Out- 
rageous. I wasn't all at first, but became him 
more as time went on. You see. Prettv Out- 
rageous was originally the persona created 
by the infamous(and some say immortal) 
Kevin Conwav 

It all happened one newspaper night, Sept. 
20, 1977 when there was a hugh hole on the 
editorial page and nothing to go in it. Con- 
; rted typing and "Bad Craziness" was 
born It ran for a semester, expounding on 
funny news, and was given a fitting funeral 
in December. But in February. 1978. Pretty 
Outrageous became Prettv Outrageous Jr. 
and "Savage Seriousness" was born 

waj graduated in ' 7 8 but Savage con- 

tinued with Julie W'aechter becoming Prettv 
Outrageous III. Later others on the staff be- 
gan adding their tasteless gems. By '81 Julie 
got tired of Savage and I took over still with 
additions from staff members like Tom Hu- 
dak. Sue Yockim " Sipple. Knsten Keer- 
ston Veeble' Susser. Mike Peterson, and 
Ray Fre) 

Ou can't blame any one person for 
these Savage columns. 

Savage and Bad Craziness served their 
purposes. One of the functions of the edito- 
rial page is to amuse and amaze, and Bad 
Craziness and Savage Seriousness did that 
better than any other block of copy. Over 
the years. Pretty Outrageous has laughed at 
and lambasted plenty of bad craziness It he 
missed anybody, it isn't because he tried 

Conway always used to pick on our poor 
assaulted security chief. Mario Bagnoni, for 
trying to secede from Pennsylvania or for 
insulting a fellow council member or |ust for 
being the head of security of a certain down- 
town mid-size liberal arts university. 

Jan. 21, 1981 — "The Knight wishes the 
best of luck to our hometown boy. but there 
is a slight reservation over the possibility of 
our security chief leaving — namely who 
could we ever get to replace him.' Who else 
could stalk the campus, scaring off drunks 
and other ne'er-do-wells and keeping Gan- 
non night life safe for boredom' Maybe he 
doesn't have to be replaced though I mean, 
there's a lot to be said for the honor system 
in campus security. So all you flashers out 
there with black handerchiefs planning your 
next dastardly deed, give yourselves up. We 
know you're out there, so stick'em up . . . 
well let me rephrase that."

Conway's specialty was little barbs inter- 
spersed with bigger barbs, tied together with 
a larger than life barb motif. And this tradi- 
tion carried over to subsequent Outra- 
geouses. When space was short and you had 
something to savior space to fill) |ust churn 
out the one-liners. And with mv last column 
coming to a quick end. that seems like a 
spiffy strategy 

April 21, 1978 — It was reported at last 
week's Spring Fever that a fraternity member 
shot the moon' at an Erie police officer. 
Probably wondered if it was an insult or an

of too much alcohol consumption, 
hurndreds of your brain cells die and can

we utilize 10 percent of our brain anyway. 
My advice: go for it — there's a lot to be said 
for altered states of consciousness." 

The King of the one-liner Savages was 
most certainly Conway. His diatribe on 
someone stealing a newspaper bin is a clas- 
sidclassic what, you ask. Quiet heretic! — 
sorry Dr. Minot). 

Feb. 21, 1979 — "Anyway the bin is miss- 

ing and we're volatile. If that bin isn't back 
bv the time this issue comes out. then we're 
just gonna get set the number of papers that 
would normally go in that bin right on the 
floor, and all the eggs will have to suffer 
because of one bad apple in the basket. 
We're serious!' (Sorry again, but I'm quot- 

"Whoever you are. if you're not feeding 
that bin correctly and it dies, you can be 
charged with murder. We're not kidding. 
Either return that bin or be prepared to face 
the consequences. 

"Speaking of bins, where had Mario Bag- 
noni bin when the bin was being taken.' 

"This bin is really not a special interest 
case for us, we're solely interested in seeing 
justice for everyone invoked in this case. 
And everyone is involved in this case be- 
cause it was for everyone's convenience. No- 
body move!" (Wow. really sorry!) 

"The last person who ripped off one of 
our bins isn't living to tell about it. He had a 
terrible ending . . . Run over at the age of 83 
by a pie wagon in I pper Sandusky." 

I want to go. Even if you would prefer 

I want to continue with this best of and I 
want to continue to write this column It's 
fun and remarkably easy, especially now that 
I have no more to do. Now I have all kinds 
of ideas to do. 

My last year, my last paper, my last col- 
umn, so begging your indulgence tor the 
sometimes bitter, perhaps egotistical tone — 
I present this scenario. 

I don't remember his name or his face, or 
the place or the time we met. but we were 
intimate friends for a few months. When we 
first met it was summertime and we went on 
many picnics drinking many jugs ol wine 
Then winter came. 

The long, grej afternoons with him, came 
to be talk empt) When asked if he had ever 
read j poem, he replied that once he had. but 
it was too metaphorical. And books were all 
'In same, thev make movies out of all the 
classics now anywa) After working hard. 
eight hours ,i dav . he wanted to come home 
•iiul relax, unwind — be entertained 

He did work hard drawing paper tOwtl 
patterns, writing greeting card couplets. 
spinning gothic romances, dreaming up sit- 
< oms, and painting on velvet 1 le worked so 
hard and vet twice a vear. between the in- 
dooi and outdoor tennis seasons, he found 

go to the tine arts museum 
Mv doorbell rang on one ol those two 

fateful Sunday afti rnoons and he walked in 

before I could answer it. It I was ready, we 
had better be leaving now. First we must 
stop at a friend's, since modern art is not v erv 
entertaining with a clear head. And if we got 
there fast enough he said, he would take me 
to lunch in the Dada cafeteria — his favorite 
restaurant. Also. ]ust in case the museum 
held more to amuse me than him. he had 
brought a book — Passion's Flame 

Suddenly I remembered a previous obli- 
gation, and that I could not possibly come 
with him. So he game me his half can of lite 
beer and walked to the door. He turned 
toward me. scrunchv-eyed and aimed his 
puckered mouth. I moved my head and his 
lips grazed my chin. But he did not notice, 
and opened his eves. Inking his lips and 
savoring the kiss. He turned and walked to- 
wards the car. flapping his hand over Ins 
shoulder in farewell. 

And so tarewell to vou. dear reader II 
nothing else remember this, there is more to 
lilt than indoor tennis, gothic romances and 
paintings on velvet ( yOUl head, open 
your mind and eves and maybe vour kisses 
will hit the target

If you saw him working at his post in the Nash 
Library you might assume that he is vour tvpical. 
everyday student library worker. But with Ralph 
Pontillo there is much more than meets the eye. 

Before coming to Gannon, which has been 
• me goal, Ralph served in the Inited 
States Air Force as an Executive Administrative 
Assistant and obtained the rank of Sergeant. 
Aft« extensive traveling and public speaking 
for the service, he finally settled in Erie, attend- 
ing Gannon as a Political Science major. 

Off campus. Ralph has been busv pursuing his 

main interest and true love — drama. His exper- 
ience ranges from a chorus role in the Erie Play- 
house's production of "South Pacific' to the 
dramatic role of Salenus in the Gannon Theatre's 
production of "Royal Hunt of the Sun.'' Other 
roles include Playhouse productions of "Came- 
lot." "Li'l Abner." and a leading role in Neil 
Simon's "Chapter Two." 

Off the stage but still in the limelight, Ralph 
has directed several one act plays and produced 
the benefit show "Variety Showcase." During 
the spring semester. Ralph could often be found 

in the basement of the Library working in the TV 
Studio. Aside from working on the new Gannon 
show — T.G.I.F., Ralph also took advantage of 
the new studio equipment to produce a four 
minute humorous reproduction of a scene from 
the movie "Rocky. 

Most recently Ralph was selected to a role in 
the pre-Broadway play "Daisv." The production 
was sold-out each night at Mercyhurst and now 
heads for the off-Broadway road. 

Aside from his life on the stage, Ralph has 
been involved with the Bit; Brother's of Erie and

It there were soap operas in the nineteenth 
century, then the twisted plot from the Gannon 
Theater presentation of "Dracula" would surely 
have rivaled any dilemna scripted on afternoon 

The time is 1887. There is no blood in Transyl- 
vania. Dracula, the 500 year old vampire has 
come to England to quench his legendary thirst. 
He has taken up residence in Carfax, an old ruin 
near the sanitorium of Dr. Seward. Dr. Seward's 
daughter, Lucy, is slowly, nightly, being drained 
of blood. Her fiance, Jonathan Harker is mad 
with worry. Her father has taken desperate action 

and has sent for the reknowned Dutch alienist, 
Abraham Van Helsing, who offers the only- 
shred of hope for the survival of Lucy Seward. 
Will Van Helsing uncover the vampire.' Will 
his suspicions of the fly-eating maniac, Renfield, 
blind him to the truth.-' Will Lucy fall under 
Dracula's spell.-' Will Lucy and Jonathan ever 
find happiness.-' Sell out crowds tuned in to the 
Gannon Theatre on October 22-25, 28-31, and 
November 1, as the story hurdled to its climatic 
confrontation with a whirl of mist, wolf howls, 
lightning, disappearances, and breathtaking spe- 
cial effects. 

The presentation, directed by William 
Steckler, and Mary Spaeder as assistant director, 
featured Mark Moorhead as Count Dracula, 
Anita Canzian as Lucy Seward. Dennis Delaney 
as Van Helsing, Gordon Jenks as Jonathan 
Harker, Ed Helenski as Dr. Seward. Randy Mur- 
zynski as Renfield. Bill Doan as Butterfield, and 
Jenny Capretto as Miss Wells. Design and tech- 
nical director was Alex Clemente. with lighting 
and special effects by Bob Steineck, sound by- 
Tim Eutin and costumes by Anne Marie Leyden.

The Gannon University Theater production 
of "Lysistrata" depicted an ancient formula for 
peace which might have sent shock waves across 
any modern day peace negotiating table. It is a 
story of women, men, sex, war and peace, featur- 
ing a 36 member cast and a unique theatre exper- 
ience once enjoyed by ancient Athenians. 

The script for "Lysistrata" was re-written by 
director Alex Clemente, in a modern day termin- 
ology that could easily be understood by audi- 
ences. The story was taken from the original 
Greek comedy written by Aristophenes 25 cen- 
turies ago, and has a theme still relevant in to- 
day's society. 

The title "Lysistrata" stands for "one who 
disbands armies" and the play's main character 
(of the same name) does just that by calling 
together the women ot Grecian cities to join in 
an effort for peace. Under Lysistrata's leadership, 
the women take a vow of "chastity" until their 
husbands sign a peace treaty to end the war. This 
effort leads to comically frustrating situations 
for both the men and women of Greece.

some of the things going on at Gannon tor the week 


A tiny dot appears in the center of the TV 
screen. Suddenly, the dot expands and fills the 
screen with a colorful picture. Then some music 
with a bold beat joins it as the screen flashes 
scenes of the Gannon campus and other familiar 
sights of Erie. Friday has arrived, and so has the 
latest edition of the TGIF program. 

After months of planning, which began in 
October of 1981, TGIF made its video premiere 
in the spring '82 semester. TGIF is an entertain- 
ing but informative, 30 minute show focusing on 
the Gannon community and its events. The pro- 
gram has the format of a weekend magazine, but 
also combines the variety of a couple late night 
network shows. 

Under the direction of Anne-Marie Brault, 
TGIF has a professional touch to it, yet is flexi- 
ble enough so that much of the student talent 
shines through on the screen. Like anything new. 
TGIF had to be experimented with and devel- 
oped as the staff of 50 worked together for many 
hours to produce each program. With a great 
deal of hard work and a little luck, TGIF prom- 
ises to be an artistic success and also a stepping 
stone tor future programming at Gannon.

Going through the library of computer files, Jim pre-

Jim Kopetsky is one of the lucky ones. He was 
able to get a head start in his career and work for 
his degree at the same time. Jim, a Mathematics 
major, was recommended for the position of 
Program Analyst at General Electric in his soph- 
omore year, a few years ahead of his time. Al- 
though he was young and without a degree, he 
was more than qualified for the position, being a 
mathematics and computer science whiz. 

When he first started his new position at GE it 
was weird being the only "kid" on the block and 

working with people twice his age, but after a 
week on the job, Jim got over his "new job 
jitters" and quickly learned his duties. His var- 
ious assignments included COBOL and FOR- 
TRAN programming, systems engineering and 
similar tasks. 

As most students know, carrying a fulltime 
class schedule and working can keep you run- 
ning. But neither Jim's grades nor his social life 
suffered from the heavy load. "It just forces you 
to organize your time better," Jim tells people. 

And organize he must have done, for Jim's 
grades couldn't be much better, graduating at 
the top of his class with honors 

Besides his work at GE and his studies at 
Gannon, Jim is also busy in the area of music 
Cantoring at various churches across the state 
and at the University Mass. 

Future plans for Gannon's "math and com- 
puter whiz kid" include more singing and a ca- 
reer in Information Systems.

Dr. Natalia Zotov 

Sister Natalia prepares for another Mass. 
In a quiet mass celebrated by Fr. Powers, Fr. Snyder- 
wine, Fr. McCullough and the Gannon Folk Group, 
Dr. Zorov entered the sisterhood. 
Taking the vows under the guidance of Father Snyder- 
wine, Dr. Zotov completes the last step in her prepara- 
tion to join the Sisters for Christian Community. 
Receiving Communion marked the end of the celebra- 
tion, which also symbolized Dr. Zotov's committment.

When many students see her, they automati- 
cally think of Calculus. However, most people 
do not know how the non-mathematical half of 
Dr. Natalia Zotov lives. Talking to her, you will 
notice the British accent that she brought with 
her from her native New Zealand. Since her 
youth, Sr. Zotov has sought a religious life. 
While she was still living in New Zealand, she 
decided to enter a sisterhood but since there was 
no demand for nuns with a math Ph.D., she 
moved to the United States. After teaching in 

Tuscon and Chicago she finally settled in the 
Gannon community. 

In the fall semester of 1981, she was welcomed 
into the Sisters for Christian Community with a 
special mass celebrated by her colleagues Fr. 
Snyderwine, and Fr. Powers, and Fr. McCul- 
lough of the Math department. 

Out of the classroom she occupies her time 
with music. She is a singer and a guitarist for the 
folk mass on the weekends. She says, "the folk 
group helps me to keep in touch with the stu- 

dents." Although being the only faculty member 
involved with the group, her fellow members see 
her as a student at heart. 

Dr. Zotov also has a Physics background 
which helps her to pursue her other interest — 
astronomy. Being a member of the Astronomi- 
cal Society, she does outside research in this 

As Dr. Zotov shows, you can be a mathemati-

TGIF and many of the video programs that 
one sees in the Audio-Visual center would not 
be possible without much of the new equipment 
that was installed in 1981. 

Ann Marie Brault was another new arrival this 
Fall at the Media Center. A Penn State graduate, 
she is in charge of the studio and equipment, and 
all of the A-V program tapes. Despite the new- 
ness of the equipment, Ann Marie and her staff 
quickly learned the tricks of the trade to get 
things running smoothly. 

The Center is now capable of taping lectures 
for professors who anticipate being absent from 
the classroom thus enabling the students to not 
miss class. The Center is also the location for 
many of Gannon's press conferences — adding 
an impressive touch to announcements of bas- 
ketball recruits, increased aid, etc. 

For the Comm-Arts major, the Center is prov- 
ing to be an interesting classroom and stepping 
stone to the real world of TV.

Provacative. controversial. Dave Schultz is no 
stranger to anyone who has read the Gannon 
Knight during the past 4 years. For those few 
illiterates on campus who did not read the 
Knight you may know Dave by his somewhat 
off-beat apparel. 

During his journalistic career at Gannon. 
Dave has covered a variety of topics ranging 
from his music reviews to his "Fear and Loathing 
at G.U." column. 

Typical of his new wave lifestyle, Schultz has 
critiqued such off beat groups as the Girl-scouts. 
Despite si the comments readers sent in 

about his band articles, he has periodically done 

album reviews in the Knight and has even cov- 
ered some rock groups that people have heard 

Perhaps his most notable year was 81-82 in 
which "Fear and Loathing" made its editorial 
debut. Schultz brought to light such issues as 
graduation speakers among Erie colleges, Erie 
radio stations, student apathy at Gannon, to 
name but a few. His column rarely went unno- 
ticed with students and faculty responding to 
Schultz. Always having a flair for the unusual, he 
not only informed his readers of the issues at 
G.U., but also brought an encyclopedia of vo- 
cabulary into print, for example; unorthodox 

massive disenchantment, to get his point across. 

When not in the depths of the Walker Base- 
ment pushing a pen, Dave is tanned and water- 
logged — being a founding member of Gan- 
non's water polo team and a Presque Isle life 

Next year the Knight columns may be a bit 
tamer as Dave moves on to tackle grad school 
and a new school system, no doubt filled with 
"unorthodox massive disenchantment." 

Good luck on a bright journalistic career, 
Dave, from your Walker basement neighbors! 
We'll miss your amazing anecdotes and creative 
bathroom genre.

Special thanks to Ray Frey, Steve Huefner, and Dr. Miguel Sague, with a very special thanks to John Lovasz 
and the entire Knight staff for their help. 

The final word . . . 

It is now July 1st and this book is nearly finished. 
There have been many long and trying hours logged 
to complete this book, more so than usual, or so it 

now seems. 

In the seven years in which I have been involved 
with yearbooks (three here at Gannon), it seems that 
some books almost put themselves together, each 
page falling into place so easily. And then there are 
books such as this, each word more difficult than 
the last — almost fighting you 'til the end. Why.-' 
Perhaps it is merely yearbook burnout, a common 
ailment among yearbook editors. Or perhaps it is 
knowing that this is the last book which I shall be so 
intimately involved with. For the time has now 
come to say goodbye to yearbooks, to classes, to 
advisors, and to Gannon. 

There are many things I will dearly miss about 

Gannon (Physics and Differential Equations not be- 
ing two of them). But it is the people whom I have 
met in the past five years that I will miss the most. 
The friendships formed with administrators, faculty, 
and students will never be forgotten, but shall al- 
ways be with me. 

A simple thank you seems so inappropriate but — 
to Monica Lewis, my yearbook advisor, thank you 
for your confidence in giving me the freedom to 
make the LANCE a book we can once again be 
proud of; to Robert DeWald and Dan DeFord, 
what can I say but thank you, for without you this 
book just wouldn't be; and finally, to Dr. Kraus, my 
academic advisor, thank you for your time, your 
patience, and even your constant nagging — I'm 
finally leaving (at least for awhile!!!).
